: this morning i read the "new york post" and i noted he quoted president obama saying that line at the democratic national convention. i was going to bring it up in this segment. i didn't realize president obama said it again yesterday. you would think even stump speech that should be refreshed and keep up with the times. they are talking to multiple audiences at the same time. in this case, he is talking to the american troops, our allies, fighting with us. our enemy and directly to the american people. those messages aren't necessarily always going to be the same. but it seems careless to suggest that al-qaeda is on the wane if in fact your general last night on "60 minutes" is saying the opposite and we have evidence that al-qaeda was behind the attacks in libya. >> eric: andrea, the guy in the backseat of the cab with laura logan on "60 minutes" was a taliban commander who says he is working hand in hand with al-qaeda. they infiltrated the afghani police and military, people we're training. they're doing what is called green on blue violence, or insider attacks. killing our
meetings about al-qaeda threat in north africa. according to the "washington post" this morning the obama administration has met several times in the last few months to talk about the terror group and whether the u.s. should launch strikes. the group has become more dangerous since gaining control of large pockets of territory in mali and getting its hands on weapons from post-revolution libya. remember folks were concerned about that. the discussions began before the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi apparently that left four americans dead. >> brian: we were reporting on that earlier than this. >> gretchen: amtrak train derails after colliding with a tractor-trailer, leaving at least 20 passengers injured. the train headed from oakland to bakersfield, california, when the truck blew through the crashing gate, hitting the train. three cars were knocked over and passenger, including a newborn baby, tossed around like rag dolls. >> it was the hardest thing. the seat in front of us was ripped out and fell on top of him. so i had to lift the seat up and dig under the debris and i found him i
with mitt romney, president obama looked on the bright side of a merely modest jobs report for september. >> this morning, we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> in his 15th stop in virginia this year and later his 14th trip to battle ground ohio, mr. obama painted a picture of an economy that may not be growing as fast as we like, but is at least going in the right direction. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy, just to try to score a few political points. >> but with the labor survey showing just 114,000 jobs created last month the reduced unemployment rate came from different survey showed a huge jump of people working part-time or from their homes. some called it an anomaly and former ceo jack welch says these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change numbers. >> and who is participating, who's not working and who's tried to work, but dropped out. all of these things. it just raises the question, and i think there ought to be

york times" story this morning which says, barak obama doesn't really like debating and he really didn't want to debate mitt romney who he views with disdain. this is an interesting thing because if he viewed romney with disdain, why wouldn't he want to debate him? obviously he could swat him like a fly. and at the views him with disdain, that's a very bad attitude to go into against somebody who before the debates, was maybe three points down from you. now today, gallup says the race is tied. the battle ground poll says that among very likely voters, romney is ahead 52-46. that's 85% of those polled in that poll was before the debate, before the debate. so we don't actually know what the results are of the debate fully. >> steve: more bounce to come. john, always a pleasure. >> thank you. >> steve: good writer. straight ahead, a major medical breakthrough. new plan to help stop cancer in its tracks and it's already working. we're going to tell you and talk to the doctor who is behind it after the break. >> pete: first let's check in with our pal, bill hemmer. what's going on at the to

in four years. a lot of questions remain on those numbers. good morn ebb everybody, i'm bill hemmer. martha: good morning everybody, i'm martha maccallum. last time we saw rate this low, that would be january 2009, when president obama took office. the labor department says of these numbers, employers added only 114,000 jobs over the course of that month. so that raises a let of questions about this headline number. many jobs added are part-time jobs. bill: stuart varney, anchor of "varney & company" in the fox business network. you read what? >> there is widespread mistrust of this report and these numbers. there are clear contradictions. 873,000 people said they had found work but only 114 thou knew jobs were created that is contradiction. if you delve a little deeper, seems a lot of these people who found work, that would be, that is the 873,000, if you look deeply, it turns out 600,000 of those 873,000 people were part-time workers. so they came back into the labor force and they pushed unemployment rate down to 7.8% but there is a contradiction here, between the number of new j

of the people think that mitt romney actually won the debate and only 20 percent believe that president obama won that debate. after that debate, literally the next morning, they were calling mitt romney a liar, the campaign and the democratic groups saying he is a liar, he made the numbers up, the facts up. if paul ryan is smart, he will go right at the numbers and say, let's talk numbers. doesn't paul ryan have an advantage if they talk numbers? >>guest: there is no doubt about that. he is an excellent explainer, particularly as i said in the economic and budgetary issues. i think if joe biden is smart, he will try to pull this discussion as much as possible into some extraneous issues like the war on women type of stuff and foreign policy. there is something of a hurdle for paul ryan to get over in this debate, to sort of passion just the basic eye test on foreign policy for a vice presidential nominee. i think that biden, look, there has been so much out there that paul ryan will wipe the floor with biden, i think that the expectations game has shifted in the obama-biden cam favor particu
this darn thing over with. >> in the spin room last night, and on the morning talk show circuit today, the obama camp was pushing a much different narrative, claiming mitt romney only won through rehearsed lines and lies. >> he may win the oscar for his performance, but he's not going to win the presidency for his performance last night. >> something that i think clint eastwood would be proud of. but on substance, his positions were just as empty as the chair that mr. eastwood had on stage. >> obama voters at this rally in denver did not completely agree, telling us while they will still support the president, they think romney scored with more than just style. >> i think he's out there and did he show some gravitas. i hope this will take us to the policy discussions. >> i think romney gave a good forceful discussion of the views that he interprets them, but i don't believe he was honest. >> in the debate, the president repeatedly failed to counter punch, missing opportunities to bring up romney's tax returns and offshore accounts when he pushed back on a charge about tax credits for

's get a look at some headlines this morning. there are concerns today that the obama administration may be looking to move some of the gitmo detainees to american soil. the federal government plans to buy the thompson correctional center in illinois. at one point this prison was considered for housing gitmo detainees and there was a huge controversy based around that. many lawmakers outraged saying it would open the door for ultimately carrying out a gitmo transfer. house speaker john boehner said this, the unilateral decision to purchase the thompson prison, even though congress repeatedly opposed the obama administration's effort to use the taxpayer funds to do so, underscores the administration's desire to move forward and bring these detainees to u.s. soil. the obama administration for its part says it has no plans whatsoever to move the detainees to illinois. >>> air force 2 had quite a ride yesterday. it aborted landings twice. bad weather was to blame. the vice president, joe biden's pair of bumpy ride, thunderstorms forced the pilot to circle the airport the first round, made hi
in the "new york post" this morning. it appears people are used to those numbers and they are not blaming president obama for those numbers according to those polls. >> tell that to ought young people to don't have jobs or the 23 million who are unemployed or under employed. some of us may be lucky and have retained our jobs and those things may just be statistics. by that's what has to do. he has to explain to people that behind those statistics are real people and real pain. martha: one of the thing that has not been achieved by the romney campaign is the feeling that he can change things and he believes that you don't have to settle for where we are. you don't have to get used to this so-called new normal. that you can do better. it seems to me that's part of his argument. >> you are exactly right. and that's part of what he has to put forward tomorrow night. and i suspect that that's part of what he intend to put forward. but you are right on target. martha: we heard about the zingers and one liners that have been worked on to a certain extent. what do you think about that? >> i'm no
-days away from the presidential election. both president obama and mitt romney pulling out all of the stops. >> a few hours from now mitt romney will deliver a major foreign policy speech. doug is live with more. >> good morning guys. good to see you all. it is the home stretch all signs of this race is really tightening up. the swing state advantage the president had early last week has now evaporated largely after romney's strong de late last week. his weekend crowds were among the largest of the campaign rallies today. >> i am not convinced you will have a chance to hear his answers or nonanswers. now of course days later we are hearing his excuses and next january we will be watching him leave the white house for the last time. >>> as you said romney will have the swing state in lexington. in anticipation of that address the obama campaign releasing an ad that attacks his recent trip to europe and israel. >> reckless, amateurish that's what news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's tour of england israel and poland. >>> last night at a celebrity rich fundraiser
morning. >> reporter: good morning, martha. >> when you see president obama sa have that awe schukes moment -- >> they always play down themselves as a debater, we see it all the time. it's tiresome, predictable and meaningless. martha: what do you think of mitt romney with regard to the debates, how ready do you think he is? >> he raised his game as a debater between 2008 and 2012. he was pretty effective in the debates this year. he kept his cool, his composure, he kept that sort of smile on his face and remained at least visibly unrattled by whatever happened, and when he had to do it and go on the attack he did it and we all remember the debate i guess it was in florida with newt gingrich where he basically took gingrich's pants off on the issue of what was in his investment portfolio and won that state by a big margin. this is obviously tk- different. it's a national audience, not a republican audience, he has to win people over. it's a different kind of challenge over a sitting president who is pretty smooth performer. what john roberts said is right, debates sometimes make a d
of democrats this morning coming out winging, agreeing that mitt romney came out swing really connected a few blows against president obama. we have a look back. >> yeah, we were all up last night and many calling it a game changer for the presidential election . president obama and mitt romney taking the stage for rown one of the debate series, this one in denver . they tried to appeal to middle class voters likely to decide who will win the states. >> governor romney's proposal he promoted 18 months calls for a five trillion dollar tax cuts on top of two trillion in spending for our military. he is saying that he is going to pay for it by closing loop holes and deductions. the problem is, he's been asked over hundred times how you close the deductions and loop holes and he hasn't been able to identify them. >> romney firing back that everything president obama said was not accurate and the republican nom no took the president to task for the nation's struggling economy. and piggy backing on the vipe- vice-president comment. >> the people who are having a problem is the middle class american
